Lori Nix b. 1969 is a photographer from Brooklyn, NY who has been building detailed dioramas and then photographing them since the early 1990s, and whose work has been widely collected and exhibited internationally.
Nix considers herself a “faux landscape photographer,”and her work is influenced by extreme weather and disaster films. She works without digital manipulation, using miniatures and models to create surreal scenes and landscapes, building dioramas that range from 20 inches to six feet in diameter. They take several months to build, and two to three weeks to photograph, using a large format 8 × 10 film camera

By illuminating his sculptures the artists multiplies his three dimensional objects by a two dimensional shadow revealing the immaterial alter ego of every figure. His characters seem to visualize a surreal, parallel world filled with surprise and enigma. Moto Waganari’s sculptures seduce the spectator with their appealing beauty and sophisticated weightlessness / via Hollis Taggart Galleries
